I had an appointment with MFM this morning and my regular doc this afternoon so I'm hanging out at the hospital in the meantime. Baby looks great on her u/s and my cervix is still doing good. I'm up to 180, so about 15 pounds total, but it's okay 'cause I know that at least 10 total is baby-related. Hadley weighs approx. 2 lbs 5 oz. just by herself, plus fluid/placenta/uterus/etc.
I'm not sure how she got her foot and her hand both up that close to her face, but awwww
I am also signing up for It Works! this week and am really excited about that! I'm going to be selling skinny wraps and other fun stuff that I use when I'm not pregnant and I SWEAR BY THAT STUFF! I'm so excited. Baby is good AND I'm about to start a new career that allows me to work from home!
Last Tuesday was also the first of two baby showers being thrown in honor of Miss Hadley and we got lots of the smaller stuff. I got lots of diapers, wipes, baby washing supplies and a pretty diaper cake. By far, though, my favorite gift thus far is the beautiful muslin baby towel that one of the ladies that takes care of my older two when they go to church (a friend takes them for me) gave us. It's one of the only things she brought with her when she immigrated from Sri Lanka and she used it for all of her own children. It's gorgeous!
Wow, that sounds completely awesome. Also...hi, baby!!!!!!
I'm up 12 pounds so far, but 11 of that is from the 2nd trimester alone so we'll see how it goes from here. Had to roll my eyes when the male nurse at my tick bite checkup pointed out that I had gained 5 pounds since my previous visit...to which the only possible reply was "Yeah...I'm pregnant." lol!
Love that pic! I guess she's all curled up in there! The towel sounds absolutely amazing...sounds like a family heirloom or something.
The weight gain is always hard for me, because I tend to gain more like 40 pounds...but you know what? It's so worth it! I do feel somewhat like a toad already though, which isn't really a feminine, sexy, glowing pregnant woman type of feeling...but oh well!
adorable picture! and yay for showers! I only had a small one with DS1.
I think I'm up around 13lbs.
